  2. Game board

    I took a decorative veneering class at one of the woodworking shows here in Portland and wanted to put my new skills to the test. A coworker asked me to make an Aggravation game board for his wife as a birthday present. I may have gone a little overboard but it was fun and I learned a lot. I...
  3. Arnie's Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I built for my sailing friend Arnie. He was a career navy sailor before retirement and spent time in Canada's sailing embassador "Oriole". He has also done considerable offshore sailing on his own so the theme of the box is fitting. And oh yes, he's a tea drinker. One of...
  4. Marquetry Cutting Table

    A friend and I signed up for a week long course in Marquetry. In the class we will be using a Fret Saw and cutting table. I prefer to learn on my own cutting table and Fret Saw so I could become familiar with them. The Fret saw was easy, just ordered one with top reviews from Amazon. The Cutting...
  5. Purpleheart Box - Urn

    Ok, 'qualified' critique is welcome….. I made this box to store my mothers ashes…. This is probably my most ill fitting piece yet. I rushed on far too much of it and it shows….It began with a .5 degree bevel on all of the main box parts. Since I cut so much of it, I plowed ahead thinking I...
  6. 3-in-1 Crib for my Granddaughter

    Used the Wood magazine plans for this 3-in-1 crib. Daughter-in-law wanted it with white paint to match the 'theme'. I wan't real keen on the idea but used Quartersawn English brown oak veneer on the panels to add some 'real' wood to the project. I used poplar for all of the painted parts. A...

  9. Epic Wooden PC Case - WoodWorkLIFE

    Hey Guys, This was a very special project combining two of my biggest passions, woodworking and technology. I made PC case or a modded PC case whatever you want to call it, completely out of wood. For this project I used two contrasting woods that work wonderfully together, Sycamore and...
  10. The "Peeping Tom"

    Another Longboard Complete. This one is a 4-way Myrtle Burl bookmatch with a lovoa inlay. Its 39.5" X9.5" drop through. Can't wait to try this one out. My only regret is not being a better photographer. The pictures just don't do it justice.
  11. Slightly Upscale Garbage Can

    So here's the story. I moved the engine panel in Friendship from inside to the cockpit which caused two problems. First was a gaping hole where it had been. The second is that I used to hang a garbage bag on the key and now it wasn't there any more. Soooo ….. this was my answer. It is a very...
  12. 'On'-lay compass rose

    This is an 0.5mm thick veneer compass rose made from maple and wengé. glue 'on' top of a teak veneered board and then I created a smooth equal surface using a generous layer of epoxy. "Ready for finishing!"

    My first piece by piece marquetry in École Boulle, Paris, during my marquetry workshop in 1996. In fact it is my second marquetry the first one could not fit together and I had to recut the all project. I keep it to remember to not cut to fat.

  20. Being 2

    Another 2008 Picture. On that one I tried to do the opposite of the white cockatoo, use big pieces, on the verge of abstraction with hopefully enough details to suggest the topic of that piece. Cut with the marquetry chevalet, using piece by piece method, in 2 layers.
